Mill Brook Trail to Kilkenny Ridge Trail, past Unknown Pond. Bunnel Notch Trail to York Pond Trail and York Pond Road to close out the loop. Decent elevation gain and some views. Great 360-degree view from The Horn, particularly good looks at Washington and the Presidentials to the south. Camping at Unknown Pond is lovely.

Did a two-day of this loop from 5/27 to 5/28. Camped at Unknown Pond and then proceeded to The Horn/The Bulge/Mt Cabot on day 2. Trail maintenance hasn't started yet, so there were some spots, especially on Mt Cabot, where we had to do a little scrambling, but nothing impassible. Some watery/muddy spots on the lower trails and by water, but again, nothing impossible. Really nice loop hike, and quieter than what you might find in the Presidentials.

Great area! The hike up to Unknown Pond, over to The Horn & Mt. Cabot is a great trip, especially if one wants to get away from some of the crowds!
